I'll bet Alcus submitted an insurance claim for everything the league lost before the Sandy's rain stopped. I'll bet the insurance claim is for alot of stuff the league didn't lose in the storm too.
Crook of crooks.

Wow, you have a real problem. Maybe if you did something positive with your life you wouldn't be so full of hate. Hurricane Sandy hurt the community and I cannot believe you would sling your hate even after such an event. Go volunteer this weekend and you could see for yourself the damage. This is the smut in town that ruins it for the good. Disgraceful.

he hasn't had hid own kid play in the league in over 10 yrs why won't he step aside and let someone else take the league in a new direction? because of the $$$$$. hurry up and rebuild the shack for him b/c it makes a lot of CASH with no way to trace it. smut that ruins this town is a perfect way to put it. open your eyes

One of the fools in town. So the only way you can do anything for a town that you live in is have a kid..can't just volunteer because you want to help? Always a reason for it. That is the reason for many but not for all. No i didn't get a team, I just know that He does do good for the league. He volunteers for a special team and gives back. But to try to talk to people who have grudges for some reason won't work. You probably did something wrong and didn't like the response because if you really knew jim you would not think the things you write. same old same old negativity in wi as usual. I am sure you go down on saturdays to help get fields ready after all of the damage...not.

Actually I'm helping my neighbors rebuild the home that they completely lost to Sandy. I help them on Saturdays, Sundays and when I can during my work week. I won't send my picture or my story into the Patch b/c I don't want or need the pat on the back like you clowns do. I help my neighbor b/c it's the right thing to do not b/c I want people to say I'm a nice guy.
It's called the Challenger League that ^special team^ you put a crown on Jims head for. Shows how much you know about your Saint Jim cause the Challenger League wasn't his idea and Jim only went with it for the publicity for himself when he was running for public office. Take a quarter out of your kids piggy bank and buy yourself a clue. Take 50 cents more and buy yourself a brain cell. You're embarassing.

We leave the shack off the little league bookkeeping because then it might get commingled with the player fees and would be harder to get our fair take. Alcus and gang only take what is fair. They only make five thousand a week off shack. After you take cost of the goods from Costco out of that you are really only left with a few thousand. Split a few ways it is really not much for running challenger league which isnt easy. Please give us some ideas for using the insurance claim proceeds. All ideas welcome.

Well, we uhh they could use the shack cash to pay for all hotel rooms @ the Huntington Hilton where we uhh they stay for the champion breakfast. We uhh they usually use the $ from the breakfast ticket sales. I love the champion breakfast cause we uhhh they take in so much $CASH$ selling all the raffles tickets and the 50/50 is just more cream on the top of our uhhhh their take. It's a great untracable cash maker for all of us uhhhh them especially around the holidays and all.

It's time to shake up this little league . When approached they give no answers . When children are treated poorly by coaches they do nothing

There are no fundraisers or sponsors the fields are embarrassing . It's time to remove this board that for years has been suspected of stealing and wrongdoing .

Look into the personal background of the president . Google his name and see what pops up first not the positive the negative

I've stayed quiet for many years but there blatant cocky attitudes have pushed enough families far enough . It's an embarrassment when we travel to other town and see what their leagues have

It's time for a change in West Islip

Start attending meetings people this Monday night at 8:30 at the Higbie Center

Thats a good start,It doesn't take a lot of dedicated people to change the board,ask for a copy of the charter, also find out who the district # 34 administrator is, report to him or her any violation of rules, or misappropriation of funds, have documents to prove any allegations. In my thirty years in District 34 , as past president NBYL ,past asst dist. adm. almost every league goes through problems….they all survived ,keep the faith and good luck…...

This guy has to go !!! Kids are being denied playing ball because this jackass says so . Today a commitment agreement was sent out to kids on summer teams totally illegal already on my lawyers desk . Next step is to involve the local media . I'd consider resigning jimmy before they come for you with the silver bracelets.

The kickbacks from the umps the money from the shack those vacations with your board members its all coming out !!!!!!
